Abstract

Objectives: To describe the management of a 5-year old female with a painless, mobile cheek mass. Methods: A retrospective chart review of presentation, imaging, pathology and management. Results: Magnetic resonance imaging showed a heterogenous mass with solid and lipomatous components. The mass was a lipoblastoma on histopathology and was excised completely with no evidence of recurrence. Conclusions: The diagnosis and management of a cheek mass in a child is challenging. Imaging is important but not diagnostic. Surgical excision is the primary management of a lipoblastoma.
